Forum: siggraph Subject: .mpeg codec?

I've downloaded 2 files so far but i can't play anything. Windows media player tries codec downloads but can't find one, and quicktime won't even open it! Any suggestions?

this is mpeg-2. A free player for mpeg-2 is the vlc (videolan) player. if you use a search engine you can find it, or look in the faq.

Hm. I didn't do anything special, but they play fine on my system - although, unless I toggle FULL SCREEN, the picture is square. I have tons of video-editng software installed on my 2K machine, so maybe the proper codec is part of one of those packages.
